Информация: Not as instant as “Fulham Fallout” but an essential addition to any self respecting Punk fans collection. This includes the UK National Chart hits “Just Thirteen” (No.66), “Out In The Dark” (No.72) and “New Guitar In Town” (No.,72) (later covered by German mega Punks Die Toten Hosen). Five rare studio demos have also been added to this important reissue.
*** Эта запись была сделана в Америке, в сухом штате Алабамы с диско продюсером Phillip Jarrell. Неудивительно, что она звучит неправильно. --- This record was recorded in America, in the dry state of Alabama with disco producer Phillip Jarrell. No wonder it sounds wrong.
*** Inspired by American bands such as the Ramones and the New York Dolls, the British beat boom of the sixties and Glam Rock acts like Slade and Sweet, THE LURKERS formed in West London in mid 1976 and quickly forged their own identity with their own brand of punk tunes and lyrics encompassing subjects such as social unacceptability and personal politics. The band built up a huge loyal following around the punk heyday of 1977 and signed to Beggar's Banquet where they scored five top forty hits between 1977 and 1979 . They also appeared on Top of the Pops and many other television shows and became regulars on the popular Radio One John Peel Show.
Due to changing musical tastes within the band and Beggar's Banquet concentrating on their new signing Gary Numan, The Lurkers decided to call it a day in 1980 but two years later a sudden resurgence of interest in the band inspired them to get back together to record for origional manager Mike Stone's Clay label, home of emerging hardcore punks Discharge and GBH. In 1984, new singer Mark Fincham ran off to work the drag clubs of Berlin and the band once again folded.
Original bassist Arturo Bassick got the whole thing going again in 1987 after a chance meeting with the huge German Punk band Die Toten Hosen, all of whom were massive Lurkers fans. Die Toten Hosen financed the comeback album, 'Wild Times Again', which launched The Lurkers' career once more and they have continued ever since, with one linup or another.
